Post Of Hangman Attracts Applicants By The Dozens in Zimbabwe

It's not a job for the faint-hearted, but that hasn't stopped more than 50 men and women from applying for a post which has remained vacant since 2005. Rights groups have pleaded with the Zimbabwean government to abolish the death penalty, which only applies to men who were aged between 21 and 70 when they committed their crimes.
